The Lying Club

By Annie Ward
Narrated by: Teri Schnaubelt
Length: 10 hours 37 minutes

If you enjoyed Big Little Lies, then you’ll love The Lying Club.

“There was definitely a lot of lying going on in this book, but I am not sure any of the characters liked or trusted anyone else to really have formed a club. I really didn’t like any of the characters – at first. There were spoiled rich kids who got into the kind of trouble you would expect rich teens to get into – but as you read you may wonder if they are really all bad kids or if it is just one or two of them. Spoiled rich parents who are used to getting their way are another group of unlikeable characters. Then there were Natalie, a young administrative assistant, and Nick, a much beloved and caring soccer coach whose main goal was to help the kids achieve success and get into prestigious schools...Even when I thought I knew what happened I got surprised. Great lessons for teens and parents of teens and the fact that money cannot keep your kids safe – that is a parent's job.”

The Murder Rule

A Novel

By Dervla McTiernan
Narrated by: Kate Orsini, Sophie Amoss & Michael Crouch
Length: 9 hours 19 minutes

The Murder Rule

“Hannah is a 3rd year law student in Maine. She is on a mission to seek revenge on the man who she believes killed her father. She wants him to stay in prison for life for a murder he swears he didn’t commit. To do this she must transfer to UVA law school and talk her way on to the Innocence project – specifically on to the case of Michael Dandridge whose original conviction was overturned but who is on the verge of being tried again, unless the innocence project can convince the judge the original evidence was tainted. Hannah is sneaky, conniving, and bright – very bright – and she manages to to talk her way on to his case. Luckily, she also genuinely believes in justice. The Murder Rule was a riveting story told from two points of view – the 1994 diary of Laura who is Hannah’s mother and Hannah’s as she works to sabotage the project. The work of the law students to help prove people innocent was intriguing and very well explained (McTiernan is herself a lawyer). The ending was totally unexpected following some real heart stopping action. The narration was perfect - I especially liked Laura's voice when reading her diary.”
